I didnt think Youngs Double Chocolate would have a rival, but this is it. Smooth as silk, perfect balance of roasted stout character and milk chocolate, neither overwhelms the other, and both are enjoyable until the end, which comes too soon.

Pure chocolate syrup. Smells really thick and syrupy, but it has a surprising light body. Chocolate sauce and vanilla taste, lightly roasted malts, kinda bright. Dessert and alcohol.

Pure bottled chocolate. Deep aroma and taste, but with an amazing balance in mouth. It takes the virtues of the beer and the chocolate. Extraordinary brew.

Aroma hits you with a big chocolate nose, and light roast. Has a fine tan head that stuck around shortly before fading. Taste was chocolate, light roast with balance towards sweet dark chocolate. Mouthfeel was med-full body with low to med carbonation. Excellent beer if you want a very chocolatey stout.

Initial taste is like hot chocolate mixed with root beer. You can really taste the organic chocolate and there is no taste of artificial flavors (since there isn't). Light bitterness, medium carbonation, short finish. This beer is a desert. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Pours a clear dark brown with a nice brown head. The head is a nice color but goes down quickly. Smells of rich dark chocolate, molasses and currents. Aroma is very sweet. Lots of chocolate flavor, but also very sweet - especially for my taste. If you are looking for a great dessert beer this could be it, but it is a bit much as a general drinking stout in my opinion. This beer does have a lot of chocolate to offer, so if that is what you are looking for give it a try.

Smells like chocolate and a little vanilla. A thin tan head settles quickly presenting a dark red brown beer beneath. Carbonation is good, not too much, not too thin. Theres definitely chocolate on the palate with a sweet creamy finish. All in all one of the nicer chocolate style beers Ive had, If I could put it on toast Id be pretty happy at breakfast!

Everything a chocolate beer should be or needs to be. Sweet, rich, full body and mouth feel, this is amazing.

How did I miss this? From a bottle smells like what else but chocolate. Nice big dark pour without much head. Yes, has good co2 and is surprizingly more palatable than most domestic choco beers. I bet those american guys could learn something from this brew. Glad to have tastedthis. A many of the attributes of dark chocolate, with just a tad of alky in there. You know, Ive had a few different sammy smiths styles and all of them behaved like a gentleman, just like this one.
